Portland, October 18th, 2013. More than 500 Portland animal lovers gathered to support DoveLewis Emergency Animal Hospital and the human-bond for the DoveAdore benefit; it’s the organizations largest fundraising event of the year and this year raised $423,000.

Guests enjoyed silent and live auctions, dinner, live appeal, and the beloved Boutiques Unleashed Fashion Show featuring fashions for both ends of the leash. (photo credit, Erik Schultz)
